The job I wanted

G. R., Panama

January 15, 2014

After doing the Novena for Work to St Josemaria several times, I managed to find a job in the area I trained for, which is quite difficult to do in the field of industrial psychology. The fact that I am Venezuelan meant people did not see me as the ideal person for this kind of job in Panama. But through St. Josemaria’s intercession God granted me the job. I am very happy because that has opened many other possibilities to me, as I am also working for a master’s degree.

Doors were opened to me

R. M., Costa Rica

January 13, 2014

I was going through a time of great turmoil when I received through the post a newsletter my Dad always used to get about the founder of Opus Dei. The postman told me to keep it as my Dad died on October 23, 2013. I opened the envelope and found the prayer to Saint Josemaria. I began praying it every morning before going to work. The situation has begun to improve and many doors that were closed to me have opened. What’s more, in my family there is more family unity and relations between us all are very good.

I have discovered St. Josemaria

A. I. V., Colombia

January 8, 2014

I am writing this testimony to thank God for the way he brought it about that I got to know St Josemaria. When my daughter was old enough to start school, I went with my husband to see several schools in our town, and quickly made our decision, for a school where we shared the values and liked the educational style. We were told that the pupils’ human and spiritual formation was based on the spirit of Opus Dei and aimed to enable each person to achieve unity of life, or overarching consistency.

He got a job

I. D., Mexico

January 2, 2014

At the end of 2012 I gave my uncle the Novena for Work to Saint Josemaria to pray, because it was now two years he was without work. After praying it, when he was on his way to Mass, he met someone who offered him a job and from then on he has always had one. We are grateful to Saint Josemaria for his intercession.

Thank you St. Josemaria for interceding before God for my daughter to come through two operations successfully.

Dental implant

A. G., Mexico

December 21, 2013

Because of faulty dental treatment I lost several teeth on the right side. Now, years later, I had the opportunity to get false teeth to replace them. But when the dentist started to work on the implant he told me that there was a problem with a porous bone and perhaps the implant would not be successful.

Not what I was looking for

After a year looking for work, I did the Novena for Work to St Josemaria and thanks to his intercession I began work two weeks ago. I have to say that it is not what I was looking for, but thank-you, because at least I know that I am in St Josemaria’s hands so he will guide me and hoping that I manage to improve my position in this job.

My bag and laptop

K. K. H., Kenya.

December 10, 2013

Last April when traveling back home from my university I lost my bag containing all my academic documents, a lap top, my diary and clothes. This happened at the Easy Coach Bus stage in Nairobi when, as I was assisting a mama with a child to put label tags on her luggage, they announced over the public address system that buses heading to Oyugis Kisii Bondo and Busia were now ready and the passengers could board for the journey. In the confusion someone took my precious bag and disappeared into one of the buses. I immediately realized this and brought it to the attention of the management. They asked me if the bag contained a lap top. I told them yes! 'You will never find that bag again. We have had many cases of lap tops being stolen here and we have never succeeded in recovering any' the supervisor told me.
